Arts in Guernsey: What's on

Friday 09 June 2023

Steampunk theatre and historical action, there’s plenty of creativity swirling around Guernsey at the moment.

Guernsey Arts gives us the low-down on where to be and what to do.

Born Of Water Film Premiere  

Discover the ancient history of our islands - brought to life by the arts.  

Born of Water is a historical action film about a raid on Guernsey in 1372. Brought to you by White Rock Productions, the level of work has involved extensive historical research into costume and the events of the raid with the staff of Guernsey Museums.  

Supported by Guernsey Arts thanks to a grant, tickets are on sale now for the premiere on 4 July at the Princess Royal Centre for the Performing Arts.

Some Like It Hot  

Exhibition by Libby McIntosh, now open to the public! Libby’s bright and tropical illustrations of the natural world are truly captivating.  


“I wanted the work to make people happy. Part of me attemptsto learn more about nature through drawing and I love the circular motion in which we relay facts about the world. Once upon a time researchers and explorers drew these beings and plants and brought them back. Now we watch Attenborough and say did you know… and list off a fact of an animal to one another. 

I think there is still a romanticism of nature to us humans… and that’s where I’m thinking at the moment. It’s an appreciation really!' 

The exhibition begins on Tuesday 6 June and runs until Friday 30 June at the Art at the Park Gallery, The National Trust of Guernsey’s Folk and Costume Museum at Saumarez Park. 

The Museum opens from 10AM until 5PMdaily. It is access-friendly. There is free entry and also access to the Museum shop. 

Island Games Pocket Island Poetry  
Guernsey Arts has developed a Cultural Programme for the islands participating in the Island Games, which will be taking place from Saturday 8 July to Friday 14 July.  

85 poems were submitted from 15 of the participating islands, some of which have been submitted in the language of the island. 55 poems will be included in the Pocket Island Poetry Anthology, which comes to 110 pages with translations. This booklet will be available for all athletes to take home to their islands.   
The poems (and artworks from the Island Games Digital Open) will be displayed across fifty-four screens showcasing the games. The digital resource will also be made available on the Guernsey Arts and Island Games website. It is hoped that this will be the beginning of an ongoing cultural programme which will pass from island to island, like the flame of the Olympic torch!  
Liberate Art Club - Steampunk Theme 
Liberate Art Club was set up by Liberate volunteers Sophie and Joni as a space to come together to get creative and feel good mentally. Join the group at La Vallette Bathing Pools from 10 June at 10AM to work on steampunk artworks. All are welcome.
